My move couldn't have gone smoother.
You want your stuff moved quickly, efficiently and safely?  Better contact Allied.  They gave me all the boxes, paper and wardrobes I needed to move 1400 miles from Michigan to Florida. Movers (Brian and Glenn) showed up on time and did all the work.  They gave me a date for delivery and I drove to my new location.  Everything arrived on the day promised and they loaded it all into a storage unit so I just pick up a few boxes a day. They also set up the king size bed and moved all the furniture to the exact location I wanted. Erica and Beverly always kept me informed as to my move status. Movers were a crew of two.  Never saw anybody work that hard on both ends of the move. Thought about using those giant pods until I found out the cost AND that I would have to load and unload it. Couldn't be happier with the move and I won't miss the snow.

Rose Moving and Storage were the BEST!
Jim came to our home and gave us a very fair and thorough estimate. Movers were great, as well! Steve and his crew took great care in moving all of our household items with nothing damaged. Beverly was wonderful, and she checked on us throughout and after the move. In the past, we have had terrible experiences! Trust me, you get what you pay for. We highly recommend this company, and will use them again for our future move.

History

The Western Michigan region has been inhabited by the Ottawa Native Americans for centuries. It is from this tribe that the county takes its name.

The first European explorers in the Ottawa (Ottawa, MI Moving) region were the French-Canadian explorers Louis Joliet and Father Jacques Marquette who passed through the region in the mid 17th century.

European settlement in the area proceeded slowly until the mid 19th century, when zinc was discovered in Crockery Creek in 1858. (Barnes, 1997) In 1872, the town of Nunica (Get Relocation Estimate for Nunica, MI) was officially incorporated, the name taken from the Ottawa word for zinc. The 1880 census showed approximately 1,000 settlers in the region. (Barnes, 1997)

Nunica experienced rapid growth in population in the early 20th century as settlers came to the region to mine zinc and farm. The settlement process was aided by the Grand Haven (Grand Haven, MI Relocation Company)-Detroit branch of the Grand Trunk Western Railroad on which Nunica was an important stop. The 1920 census shows Nunica at the peak of its population, with 8,000 citizens.

By 1924 the zinc ore in the region had been completely exhausted. Coupled with a particularly severe influenza outbreak in 1927 that claimed the lives of nearly 800 people from the town, the population of Nunica (Get Moving Quote for Nunica, MI) declined precipitously. The 1930 census shows the population of Nunica (Get Moving Prices for Nunica, MI) as 5,000.

In 1935 nearly one-third of Nunica (Get Moving Estimate for Nunica, MI) was destroyed by fire, in what became known locally as the great Nunica (Get Movers Cost for Nunica, MI) fire. It is speculated that the fire began when the Nunica (Get Movers Estimate for Nunica, MI) train station was struck by lightning. (Barnes, 1997:35) In either case, the train station that had served as the main source of livelihood for the town was completely destroyed, along with such forgotten landmarks as the Nunica (Get Movers Prices for Nunica, MI) Conservatory for Music and other Fine Arts and the Nunica (Get Moving Estimate for Nunica, MI) casino. None of these landmarks were ever rebuilt. In addition, nearly 150 acres (0.61 km2) of farmland were completely destroyed.(Barnes, 1997)

Since the train station was never rebuilt, Nunica (Get Move Cost for Nunica, MI) never recovered from the devastating fire and the population went into freefall. By 1950 there were only 1,000 citizens in the greater Nunica (Get Move Quote for Nunica, MI) area. In 1957 the town was unincorporated. The current population of Nunica (Get Relocation Quote for Nunica, MI) is estimated at 400. (Barnes, 1997)
